ALGERIA SHRINE TEMPLE ELECTION CHANGE

Potentate Jon Jackson has directed that notification be sent to the Algeria membership regarding a procedural change for the December 5, 2020 election of officers. 

As discussed in the Algerian which was just distributed to the membership, elections are to be held on December 5, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. in the annex of the Algeria Temple.  Due to the latest upsurge of infections from the COVID-19, Potentate Jon Jackson has decided to change this to a virtual meeting which will be held in the conference room of the Temple at 1:00 p.m. on December 5, 2020.  A "Go-To-Meeting" conference call will be established and access information to call in will be made available for those Nobles that wish to participate and vote from a remote location.  Nobles that wish to physically attend the meeting in Helena are welcome.  The "Go-To-Meeting" access information will be e-mailed to all the outlying clubs with instructions to forward this information to their current membership.  Please keep in mind that in order to cast a vote, you must be a Shriner in good standing with dues paid up to date.  

If any club or unit wishes to nominate someone for an elected Divan position, they need to get their nomination turned ASAP.  

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Bill Spurzem at the Algeria office.   


ALGERIA DIVAN AND CLUB OFFICERS, PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ALL MEMBERS ON YOUR DISTRIBUTION LISTS.

Algeria Shriners are on Facebook! Like Us...

posted Jan 19, 2016, 8:17 PM by Rick Robinson   [ updated Jan 28, 2017, 3:39 AM ]

Did you know that Algeria Shriners have a page on Facebook?
  
 
It is right here (check it out):
 
 
Now... you may say something about how you do not like Facebook, or that is not what you do, or "face-what?" or something like that... but it is a powerful tool and it reaches Shriners plus family and friends of Shriners throughout the world!  
 
It also reaches potential Shriners (remember... those guys younger than you).  
 
When potential members want to know more about an organization, company, or non-profit, one of the first things they do is search the web and the second thing they do is see if there is a Facebook page (and if people "like" it).
 
So... here is what YOU need to do TODAY:
 
1) Go to the link above and LIKE our page 
2) Post a picture of a recent Algeria Shrine event (parade), a picture of your favorite Shriner, a picture of your horse in your Fez, your Shrine Club, or anything Shrine-related (as long as it is respectable) 
3) Post about an upcoming Shrine Club or Parade Unit event 
4) Check in tomorrow and see who likes you posts and pictures 
5) Repeat steps 2-4 

Share what you love about Algeria Shriners - Post it on our Facebook Page!

Do you have photos?  

Do you have photos from recent Algeria or other Shriner events that would like to share with the rest of our temple (and other temples)?  If so, please send them to: 

admin@algeriashrinersinternational.org  

And we will get them posted on our website.  

If they are too big (get bounced), please send an email anyway and we can setup another method to get the files transferred (i.e. Dropbox, Google Docs, etc.).  

Thanks!

New Patient Referral Process Approved at Imperial Session

posted Nov 12, 2012, 11:19 AM by Rick Robinson   [ updated Jan 28, 2017, 3:39 AM ]

Great news!
  It is now easier than ever to refer a patient to Shriners Hospitals for Children®! 

At the 138th Annual Session in July 2012, the attending delegates approved amendments to the Colorado Bylaws 509.2 and 509.3 which simplified the way for patients to access Shriners Hospitals. Patients/families no longer need to fill out a two-page application form that must be processed before being considered for treatment. While this is a big change for our system and YOU, we want to assure you that our Shriners are more important than ever in finding children that need our help; as well as informing the public about the noble mission of Shriners Hospitals for Children. We need your participation now, more than ever, to reach more patients. This new process makes it easier for our patients and will still allow for engagement with the nobility. Travel and transportation support should not change. Contact your Shrine temple or hospital if you have questions.

This new intake process continues to support your valuable referrals, without the added step of completing a patient application. Instead, simply provide patients/ families with the Shriners Hospitals for Children patient referral card, which may be obtained from your hospital or Shrine temple. In addition, a new Patient Referral Form will be forthcoming in the near future. However, the referral card is preferred, with the patient/family calling the hospital’s referral intake line directly. Why? This is the quickest and most convenient way for a patient to get the care they need. 

When did this start? In October 2012, Shriners Hospitals simplified the process for our new patients; allowing immediate scheduling for an appointment if their clinical needs meet the hospital’s scope of service. 

Please contact your local Shriners Hospitals facility your local hospital coodinator if you have any questions.  To learn more about our services, or to refer a patient, visit shrinershospitalsforchildren.org
